Fort Standard

if you have read this blog for any length of time you will be familiar with Fort Standard, who are known for their awesome bottle openers, and with photographer Brian W. Ferry – both who i have featured a number of times. so Brian shot the new line of home products by the talented duo (they are friends in real, actual life), a wonderful collaboration if i ever did see one. you can see Fort Standard’s new products here – i particularly LOVE those marble platters.

Fort Standard is a contemporary Industrial Design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Their collaborative work is an ever-evolving dialog between their unique perspectives and their shared approach to progressive design thinking. Working primarily in long lasting natural materials, their approach to design is often geared towards using traditional production methods in innovative ways. Having developed a distinct form language rooted in simplicity and functionality, their attention to detail, connections and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a “warm-contemporary” aesthetic.
